Today in The Morning Chai, we understand what a CPI index is, we discuss few ingredients for success and take a small step towards success.
Finance Bites — What is CPI?
Today the US inflation rate data as measured by the Consumer Price Index has been reported at 3.0% on an annual basis. CPI is a measure of change over time, in today’s case, over a 1 year period of the price of a fixed based of goods.
A US CPI over 3.0% Year-over-Year as reported today till June 2023 essentially implies that cost for households and in turn inflation has increased by 3%. CPI is an indication of the effect on households of prices for common goods.
Life Bites — What are the ingredients of success?
Over the last few years, a constant question has been arising in my mind.
What do you need to succeed in life and how can you achieve that? And I can’t seem to take away the following F’s from my mind:
I can’t shake my head beyond the above 4. To be in the right frame of mind, you can’t go beyond the above 4, Fitness, Family and Finance with Focus being at the center of everything you do, be it learning and work or anything else.
Do you Agree? Share your thoughts in comments and do share better pictorial representations of the above if you are artistically savvy.
Santo’s thought to ponder
“The simplest ideas start from a small step.”
If you don’t take the small step, you never know what you can achieve.
